About the Events

Pa'lante VII: "Contra la Corriente" - March 25, 2017 at Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University.

The theme of this year’s conference, “Contra la Corriente,” translates to “Against the Currents” reflecting our challenge to all our participants and members to be the voice for underserved Latinos so that the echoes of Justice may be heard for generations to come. This year’s conference aims to bring together over 200 Latina/o law students and professionals and discuss and brainstorm various ways to empower the Latino community. Equally important, the conference will establish a forum for Latina/o law students to meet peers and leading professionals in the field and give attorneys the opportunity to earn between 1.5 to 4 CLE Credits.

Since our inception, we have participated in voter registration drives, immigration reform demonstrations, and we have collaborated with Street Law:  Know Your Rights presentations with local organizations like LatinoJustice PRLDEF. We have instituted mentorship programs for current and prospective law students, and contributed to other academic and social justice initiatives. As our efforts are solely charitable and supportive, MetroLALSA is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
